The death of American special forces in Niger

118
A grim video of the death of four US Green Berets in Niger, shot with a helmet camera, appeared on the network. This was told by the blogger rostislavddd.




It is reported that the battle took place in October last year. Of the Americans 13 killed four. As part of the Nigerian platoon supporting them, the casualties were killed - 4 people, wounded - 8 people.

Judging by the descriptions of the battle, the military stumbled upon militants who were waiting for them (up to 50 people), who were hiding in the dust raised by a herd of cows.

"Loyalists and occupiers" were immediately divided into several groups and saved as many as they could.



“The crew of one of the American Land Cruisers was not lucky. One of the special forces was killed in the car, two others behind her. The longest lived Sergeant La David Johnson (black in the photo), whose body was found a few days later a mile from the ambush site along with two dead Nigerians, ”the publication says.

              Sergeant La David Johnson (the black one in the photo) lived the longest, whose body was found a few days later a mile from the ambush

              Apparently, he immediately "gave it in slippers." The blacks are tired of chasing him.

          I drank the dough for blood - if there are no terrorists, then we need to think of them, and then fight with them or use them to solve dirty but profitable cases (murders, provocations, coups, arms and drugs trafficking) around the world, people are just expendables, like Yankees do not stick out their human personality everywhere, as a result, they are zombies and biomass for their elites at the heights of power, this is very American ....

            In Soviet times, the "green berets" could be killed without hesitation. They did not fall under the concept of "prisoner of war". They were considered mercenary thugs working in the USA. However, the video presented shows that they do not know how to fight at all.

      It didn’t seem strange to you that during the shooting near the jeep the American shoots greenbacks and the car is safe in response, then the enemy goes with Kalash in the frames shown so they would rid this car in drushlag and it is safe again and all the windows are safe, definitely a hypocritical movie show.

      They tried to help the wounded, some cars were apparently damaged, the allies fled. There were more attackers and after stopping the patrol, a round (successfully) was undertaken, and most importantly, panic. The drone operator did not have communication with the group, or did not know what to do (an indication of the number of attackers, their location, the escape route for the group, etc.)
      Passivity of the group itself. Group weapons weren’t used on machines and it couldn’t help at short distances (but you could try to remove them), especially since the cars weren’t military, part of the group wasn’t sent to the rear or to the flank, the group didn’t try to move to more advantageous positions defense, lack of command, well, and much more. In general, the rout is logical.

        yeah, i.e. all countries must wait until we offer them military assistance with militants (and we did not offer) and until our companies start pumping oil from them? Until then, let the militants do what they want there? for example, hundreds of schoolgirls are abducted. awesome position. straight in the best traditions of the Saxons.

            Well, if you prefer them to nightmare (and there it seems like haram), the population is more efficient, without help from anywhere - no question.
            I personally like it better when fighting terrorists. and if this country does not have the opportunity to fight on its own, and, as far as I know, neither Russia, nor China, nor anyone else except the USA provides this assistance, then it doesn’t matter who they have and what is pumping.

              The problem is that the "carriers of democracy" do not care about schoolgirls and the population and the fight against militants. They themselves are raping schoolgirls no less than those Islamic militants. And they come with their so-called "democracy", only to those places where they are not able to resist and defend their sovereignty. Something in the dermocratizers point somehow did not unclench against North Korea to start a war. Therefore, I have not the slightest desire to feel sorry for World Terrorist No. 1, who is already so tired of the whole world with its cocaine-oil "democracy" that the ratings of hatred towards them are off-scale.

Well, let me remind you: exactly the same people fought in the Second World War on the western front. if these died in Syria, I would not say a word, but they fought with terrorists in another country, in a country that we cannot provide assistance. let the militants in her feel free or what?

        And whose "brood nests" are these militants? Who created and financed them? Yes, not specifically these unfortunate commandos, but they fought with arms in their hands for the interests of those who spawned all this radical Islamic mud. So why should I feel sorry for them? This one will come to your home, shoot your loved ones and say - "Sorry man, bat - Ai Em only obeyed the order. Nothing personal, but we were told that the Russians are enemies and they need to be destroyed." Therefore - I see no reason to spare our enemies. They will not spare you. Look at their media - it’s wild joy all the time when Russians are being killed or nightmare somewhere. I remember Chechnya, I remember Beslan and their nasty reaction.

    Now the question torments me: why is he shooting from the hood, and not from the knee, near the left wing?


    The review is higher, that is, it is possible to shoot more accurately at the enemy, in fact only the head and shoulders are open, and the body is covered by the machine’s body. But from the point of view of the tactical training of the Russian army, this position is inappropriate, it’s more convenient for the enemy to aim at such a target against the background of the machine, and the question of personal safety is more important than the question of more convenient hitting the target. Our guys would take a position near the shelter and lower to be for the enemy, so to speak, go to the lower level, try to hide from visibility, and, accordingly, would use smoke grenades, They would have dispersed more widely. But the Americans have a different preparation. I do not think that the video production, in principle, the standard actions of the American army, apparently just hoped to hold out and counted on reinforcements.

    Since the soldiers serve in the army of their country, I have no ethical issues for them. A soldier is always obliged to carry out orders, and in this case, special forces do not kill non-combatants.
    Personally, from my point of view, it is difficult to draw a specific conclusion on this video, since it is mounted from fragments. We can only state that in the end the fighters were forced to withdraw while being cut off from their fellows. I believe that the death of the GPP or cover group upon departure can well be captured. It is difficult to imagine in what stressful situation they were and how they acted under fire, but it’s worthy of respect that they didn’t stop firing, the cartridges didn’t burn, they tried to cover themselves with the body of a Kruzak and checked the fallen bodies of their brothers for signs of life, simultaneously removing them from the firing zone . The ending of the video is an obvious agony when the two survivors making sure of the death of their comrades tried to move away. Given that they had a minimum of ammunition (several stores in unloading), there were no other options. Further only "own" grenade.

    do you need payment documents? Or do you analyze it yourself? who produces oil?

    It would be nice if you blame!

    I am amazed at your antilogy, the government in Nigeria has a legitimate Muslim government, which invited the Americans to fight against the radical Islamists Boko Haram and Royal Dutch Shell legally extracting oil there, by the way, it

    Royal Dutch Shell participates in the development of the Sakhalin shelf (Sakhalin-2 PSA project, together with Gazprom and Japanese Mitsui and Mitsubishi) and the Salym group fields in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area (50% share in Salym Petroleum Development N .V. - JV with Sibir Energy). The company also plans to participate in the development of offshore oil and gas projects in conjunction with Gazprom.



    Everything is logical and legal, both in Nigeria and in Russia!
    Only Russia itself fights against the Islamists, and Nigirians with a little help from the United States.

    I agree, there was no panic in their actions, they acted according to the instructions. American specialists have very high psychological training, unlike ordinary infantrymen, so they should not be underestimated. It confuses only the fact of insufficient equipment, or preparation of military personnel data, if it was experts, why they didn’t use mines such as Claymore for withdrawal, grenades, they could even mine or set fire to a jeep to distract attention, finally just did not try to move more stealthily, and not at full height, the grass there was quite tall.

    Namely, the legally elected Nigirians and they themselves decide everything to invite for help, without asking and consulting the "great sage" Geisenberga.

    They don’t ask the American soldiers, they are ordered where to climb and what to do, their share is the same as the Russian, dead soldiers and officers in Syria.


    Amerikosov has not been forcibly sent anywhere for a long time. And do not order. If these were conscripts, this is one thing. And these are contract soldiers who have undergone training and voluntarily went there, it is not clear what to do. Why feel sorry for them?
